LeaseWeb is currently looking for a highly motivated Virtualization (DevOps) Engineer to join our Branded Cloud team in Amsterdam.

It will allow you to get your hands on the coolest projects and to be equal parts creative and effective.
The atmosphere is informal and relaxed, yet highly motivating, place to work. Our organizational structure is flat and we value independence and entrepreneurship and that’s why you will have some of the most inspiring and overall awesome colleagues in the industry!
